Cruise – Deorro + Morgan Page Drive In
Deorro, Morgan Page and friends car rave
Being stuck in SoCal during Covid has some advantages that many other places do not, Car Raves!!! Since Fall 2020, every weekend there has been at least one car rave, giving ravers a chance to get out and party as safe as possible, giving DJs a chance to play live and employ many people to help run the events, in essence, it is a chance to escape staying home.
Well, finally the Central Valley was getting some of that love as I headed up north on a short 3-hour drive to Tulare, CA to meet up with an old friend Kailin Hwang owner of K-Lin. He and Midnite Events threw their first event of 2021 since the start of pandemic and it was fantastic. On March 27th, they hosted Cruise: Deorro with special guest Morgan Page, Niiko x Swae and local Maxx’d Out.
The event took place at Tulare’s International Agri-Center. As you entered this outdoor venue, it was a dark reminder we were still in a pandemic as a very large Covid-19 vaccination center was in the lot next door. The venue was spacious and they had a few taco trucks on standby. Unlike events in SoCal, you had to walk to get food, so for the first time in over a year it felt like being back to normal. Although people were allowed to walk around, people went back to their cars after getting their foods.
The energy of Central Valley was in full effect. They were singing and dancing the whole night. Maxx’d Out and Nikko x Swae did their part and set the mood right for the night with solid sets but Morgan Page and Deorro slayed. Both artists dropped some of their biggest bangers and some new tunes. They were definitely feeding off the crowd. As the night went on, the energy kept growing, people were dancing everywhere and just like that the event was over.
Exiting the event was smooth and traffic free as we headed back to our hotel for the night.
Overall it was a great event and cannot wait to come back in the area for the next one.
